That’s how I learned to decorate for Christmas when I worked at Biltmore Estate. Luckily, it lets Thistle off the hook. I do NOT decorate my dog. But I LOVE to drape everything else in red and green and holly. And today is tree day!
Each year I try to take a day off from work when I can just decorate. And it’s usually closer to Christmas than Thanksgiving. I kind of like the old tradition of putting everything up on Christmas Eve and leaving it up ’til Epiphany, but I can’t wait that long so today it is. The tree won’t get finished until this evening, but here’s a preview of everything else.
